About Me I am 51 years old , I have a 16 year old developmentally delayed son. 7 months ago I owned a 80 acres farm with a 4 bedroom home. 6 months ago my mother passed away at home with me beside her,She and my son they are my everything. My mother left me in March and shortly after that because of my disabilities i was unable to continue working, I usually worked two to three jobs at a time to make ends meet. I have since had to apply for disability through the government which takes up to a year to receive if i receive it. Seems like people that work hard all their lives would qualify sooner but that's just not how it works. To make things even worst that they all ready are my brother passed away on my birthday. To say the least this has not been a very good year for me. And to top that my son and I are basically homeless. We stay at a friends house during the week so he can go to school and we stay at my sisters on the weekends. I have never in my life ever thought I would be in such a horrible position.I have worked hard all my life taking care of the elderly and of my mother and other family members and all my life my mother and granny always told me that as long as i did good for people and help them in their times of need when I needed help their would always be someone there to help me. Did they just lie to me i wonder because i have nothing now but a broke down car that barely runs and no home and a son that i so far have made feel as though we have all these things. I have always been able to work so that when holidays come around i have always been able to give him a wonderful Christmas. The time for giving... I fear the look on my boys face when he wakes up this year and he has nothing. How will i ever make him understand. I'm not sure why i am even writing you but i woke from my sleep and i was compelled to write to you. Maybe in hopes that i could win one of your Visa giveaways or something, I'm not sure . I have never in my life asked for something for my son because I have always been able to provide for him.I see you help so many people and i know I am a nobody and why should you help me but you seem to be the only one that at least makes me laugh and smile once a day in a world that seems hopeless to me now. I could never travel to see you as fun as it would be. So i just watch you everyday. So even being without a home and pretty soon without a car you seem to bring happiness into my life and I wanted to Thank You for that. I'm trying to sign up for your give away in hopes that just maybe by chance i am choosen even though i have never won anything , I thought maybe it was worth a shot. I hope that you and your Family have the very merriest of Christmas and I want to Thank you for all that you do for so many people. You have brought so much happiness into so many peoples lives that really needed it. It's nice to know that there are still good and kind people in this world like you.
